Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

The property has connecting/adjoining rooms, which are subject to availability and can be requested by contacting the property using the number on the booking confirmation.

Bad air conditioning control | great location
it was good but could had been better than it was. The room does not have a good air conditioning control... either it is too much cold or it is off and then it is too warm. There was not a controller which works. Air conditioning was the only problem within this Hotel!

Windsor Guanabara Hotel
We had booked the hotel room for 2 nights but after the first night decided to stay 3 more nights because of the proximity of buses and metro station. We thoroughly enjoyed their buffet breakfast. Lots of fruits, breads, desserts and meats as well as eggs. We are vegetarians and first day we arrived at the hotel at 2.30 pm. In the dining room we found it was too late to enjoy the lunch buffet but Andre, one of the waiter/supervisors, allowed us to order vegetable soup. It was delicious.
